Welcome Beez !

I don't really have an opinion on the primitive weapons. Its really not primitive anymore, so if they did include the encore, I wouldn't loose any sleep over it.

I'll just stick with my "primitve" knight .50 caliber with 209 shotgun primer shooting pyrodex :lol:

The next gun I will buy will probably be an "encore" rifle.

got a friend to order, no time frame really, but if not soon then i will get an H & R 45/70 with the 32" its nice and only about $320. I looked at the handi-rifles and in 45/70 that would be a lot of abuse :lol:
